On Thursday November 16th, country music riser Adam Doleac preformed to a sold out crowd at Chicago's Joes Live while opening for songstress Carly Pearce. Known for his high energy performances, the country crooner brought his A game for 40 minutes of hit after hit, and even a sing- a- long.


The fans have spoken, they love Adam Doleac live! Following his sold out “Barstool Whiskey Wonderland,” Adam is hitting the road once again on his new 19 date "Wrong Side of a Sunrise" headlining tour. The riser will weave his way across the country, kicking things off February 21st at Nashville's Brooklyn Bowl, and wrapping on May 18 in Grand Rapids. Doleac will also hit major markets like Atlanta, Boston and Virginia Beach!

"There's obviously so much more control you have over the headlining show than you do when you're opening," Adam said as he touched on his excitement for his upcoming headlining tour. Doleac also spoke on the rush he gets playing for his own fans versus an opening spot. "I enjoy playing to 1500 people that are here to see our show even more than I do playing to 20,000 people like opening for Zac Brown or something," Adam said with a smile.

When it comes to creating a set list, Adam also admits that his fans have a huge impact on what ultimately gets played. "The fans have a lot to do with it. can kind of tell what is popular demand every night. There's some nights where we will take something out and then I'll get 50 messages after the show saying," I drove three hours, why didn't you play this song. "I'm a person that actually cares about that, so it breaks my heart when that happens. Needless to say, Adam ensures that the Wrong Side of a Sunrise tour will have something for all his fans.


This holiday, the circle will remain unbroken and the Opry once again hosts its TV Christmas Special! Hosted by the one and only Wynonna Judd, the night full of heartwarming moments will air air on Dec. 7 on NBC at 8PM ET and will stream on Peacock the following day.This year, Doleac gets to step into the circle to perform his new holiday tune. Adam touched on the significance of the moment and even laughed that his nerves were high, even though he has stepped in the circle before.

"I was pretty nervous. The Opry is always nerve-wracking anyway. It's kind of a different kind of nerves. I recently got to see the final product so no more nerves. But the whole experience was great! it went really great I kind of loved that it was at the Opry because I've played the Opry five or six times now just on my own. The band was incredible, and the lineup was so good. My mom drove up for the day. She was in the crowd, so she got to see the whole how the sausage is made of actually taping the show and everything," Adam smiled.

To ring in the holiday season, Adam is putting his spin on an Eagles' classic. Drawn to more guitar heavy tunes, Doleac knew that if we was going to record a Christmas track, it had to be Please Come Home for Christmas. The soulful take on the heartache holiday tune allows the country crooner to do what he does best, soar inbetween the notes and let fans get lost in the melody.


To wrap up a whirlwind year, as a thank you to his fans, Adam is releasing his take on the Switchfoot hit Dare You To Move. After teasing the cover for a few weeks, Adam is excited to announce that the soulful cover will drop December 8th.

Adam also promises new tunes in the new year. Always writing and finding inspiration, Adam's innate ability to connect with country music fans is truly a superpower. Always putting his fans first, and even making surprise appearances at weddings, Adam is charging into 2024 with new found inspiration and pride.
